Glass / Re: Crystal desk tidy in Blue cut to clear color with Skoda mark
« Last post by Anne on June 04, 2023, 02:41:53 PM »
Probably a promo piece for sales, or an award of some sort, produced for Skoda to give to their distributors.

I think Siegmar may have meant to say that when you set out to colour a piece with uranium you better use standard glass. No need for lead crystal to bring out the colour. But I have a finger bowl from Baccarat around 1840 which is high quality crystal with uranium, turning it into Chrysoprase, an opaque opaline. I also have its companion, high quality dark green lead crystal. FWIW.

This is a fantastic opportunity.  The article is about Rotterdam but apparently the V&A are set to do something similar:

Let's hope it includes lots of glass :)

Glass / Help With I.D for this Bowl/Vase

Hello!

I have very recently acquired this lovely piece of glass,
After some time trying to research I canít find any pieces that match for an identification.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thank you all.
I will go with the 74-76.

All looks spot on for a '74-'76 piece.  One of my favourite ranges :)
